These Buddy Miller broom-closet tapes are the epitome of Tapers getting on The Bus. I'll go out on a limb here. This is the most incredible Taper Story, and the best "privately taped" GD Fillmore East run, all rolled up into one. It's the greatest story ever told - thanks to Bill Gadsden.

It looks like Charlie is pulling out all the stops on this run. Evidently, they had their "pitch-analysis" team agreeing to correct these tapes. And we have some new material. They must have decided the broom closet tapes were a bit out, after getting their hands on another souce. And we have the "tape baking" restoration technique getting used here. Charlie and the crew deserve our hearty thanks.

broom closet tapes - most likely taped on a Sony 630 deck - $279 in 1970
